As a sideline to wildlife photography, I worked as a freelance theatre and events photographer in Edinburgh from 2009-2015.
In many ways I see those theatre days as crucial formative moments in my approach to photographing animals and capturing light.
During coverage of the Edinburgh International and Fringe Festivals, I had unique backstage access to the world's most prestigious
performance arts companies - from the National Ballet of China to the Mariinsky Opera.
My performance photos have been published in national and worldwide press, including:
THE GUARDIAN ◆ THE TIMES ◆ NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ◆ MAIL ONLINE ◆ THE IRISH TIMES
EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS ◆ THE STAGE ◆ THREEWEEKS UNLIMITED MEDIA
Below is a small selection of images published during that time, which I am in the process of updating.
I can also take on headshot photography commissions for actors and artists. In the past I have photographed Neil Gaiman, Rupert Everett and Salman Rushdie, among others. For headshot photographs and pricing to suit your requirements, please visit my Headshot page.
